In response to the Mattoon ambulance service, I invite Mattoon to look at Charleston.
Our ambulances are staffed by trained paramedics from the city fire department. I don't know what the fees are. I have ridden in an ambulance a few times and Medicare and my supplement has paid the bill every time.
The boys were prompt and courteous.
Mattoon can do the same thing. Only one service is in Charleston, thus less confusion as to which service to call. It may take time and money to convert to one service like Charleston's. Wouldn't lives saved be worth it?
